They say our blood is the red river of life. Many of us may not know it but our blood vessel is a 60,000-mile system of channels that deliver oxygen and nutrients to every cell in our body. It’s connected to our immune system, our healthy gut bacteria, how our DNA behaves, and even our body’s ability to regenerate. Dr. Will Li heads the non-profit organization, The Angiogenesis Foundation, in the exploration of conquering diseases by looking at common denominators. He believes that the practice of medicine is all about putting together the pieces of a puzzle of someone’s health or sickness and trying to figure out what’s going on, and angiogenesis or blood vessel growth is a very important factor of that.
